The power of joy

See the things you do not as work, but as opportunities for joy. Put the power of joy into the entirety of your day, into the whole of your life.

You can always choose your perspective, no matter what may be going on around you. Living from a perspective of joy and positive presence gives you great power to manifest that joy in the world at large.

Don’t limit the joy in your life by thinking of it only as something you must find or acquire. See joy as one of the greatest gifts you have to give, to yourself and to all of life.

You don’t have to live in a fantasy world or deny reality in order to be joyful. Simply release joy from the limitations and conditions you have placed on it, and it can always be a very real, and realistic, part of your experience.

The place to always find joy is in your miraculous existence. Allow that joy to flavor each moment, each situation, every effort and every choice.

Live your life with the power of real, true, uninhibited joy. And live the great treasure that is always yours.

— Ralph Marston
